Taxonomic remark The species was published as new twice. First in McIntosh in Jeffreys (1876: 218), as Tachytrypane jeffreysi, and later in McIntosh (1878: 505), as Tachytrypane jefreysii [note the double 'ii']. This way, the correct spelling and authority should be Tachytrypane jeffreysi McIntosh in Jeffreys, 1876. [details]

Habitat Mud, also referred as Globigerina-mud, at bathyal depths. According to McIntosh in Jeffreys (1876: 219), concerning Tachytrypane jeffreysi and Tachytrypane arctica: "Both species had the intestinal canal filled with fine Globigerina-mud; so that in all probability they live in this easily penetrated medium, after the manner of their congeners in the sand.[details]
